Chicago, Illinois – Diana Valdez Contreras, a long-time resident of the Chicagoland area, passed away peacefully in her sleep on the morning of October 15, 2012. She is survived by her husband Miguel Contreras, children Adrian (Eldanidia), Miguel and Edgar, siblings Balbina Razo (Jose Luis), Imelda Torreblanca, Leticia (Francisco) Nunez, Eugenia (Javier) Salgado and Miguel Valdez, grandchildren Lizabet and Ryne Valdez Rocha and many nieces and nephews.
Diana found her greatest happiness in helping others and sharing the life, energy and innocent moments of her grandchildren. She was a kind soul, always putting others needs before her own, and a friend to many. And, although she wore many hats (wife, mother, Tia, Tita and homemaker), her best attribute was being the foundation of support and guidance that held the Contreras-Valdez family together. Her passing leaves a significant void in the lives of those who knew her, yet we are all grateful for the lessons she shared.
The family finds comfort and strength knowing that she is once again in the loving arms and warm embrace of her mother Raquel Castro. May they both rest peacefully and know that that they will forever live on in our hearts.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Contreras-Valdez family.

Services will be held in her name on the 27th of October at St. Procopius Catholic Parish in Chicago.

Followed shortly after by a gathering of family and friends at her home:
